Hola Dudes & Dudettes,
I've been saving money for the last 4 years to buy myself a gaming rig in the very recent future. My cousin is currently living in Germany, so I intend to make him bring the individual parts/components for my rig when he arrives in BD. Now I am stuck in choosing the right brand & wattage of the PSU as I will be using two MSI N770GTX LIGHTNING in SLI and one MSI N550GTX-TI CYCLONE II OC for PhysX/APEX. If it helps, let me layout a detailed configuration for my future rig:
Processor- Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5 GHz (Haswell) LGA 1150.
Mainboard- ASUS Maximus VI Hero.
RAM- Corsair Dominator Platinum Series®- 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) Dual / Quad Channel DDR3 DRAM 2400MHz Kit C10 Kit Memory.
Hard Drive- Western Digital WD2002FAEX (2 TB) Caviar Black.
Graphics Card- 2X MSI N770 GTX LIGHTNING
1X MSI N550 GTX-TI CYCLONE II OC.
SSD- 2X OCZ Vertex 4 (250GB).
Cooling- Noctua NH-D14.
*Purpose Of The PC- Gaming, Autodesk MAYA & Sony Vegas Pro. For gaming, I intend to use HDMI output.
Question for the experts:
1) According to my own deduction, I require a 1500W PSU. Do I really need a 1500W PSU ?. P.S- I do not intend to overclock anything.
2) If I do need a 1500W PSU- then I prefer 80+ PLATINUM; And in such case, what brand should I go for ?.
Thank You All In Advance.
